A new analysis looks at what it would take for oil companies to start pumping millions of tons of carbon dioxide into their wells to boost crude production – and what it would mean for the climate.
Congratulations to Dr. Harrison Lisabeth on receiving the 2017 AGU MRP Graduate Research Award! During his Ph.D. research, Harry carried out innovative experiments and obtained results that have important implications in geological CO2 sequestration. This award recognizes Harry for the outstanding contributions achieved. Some of the results from this study can be found in a new publication in Earth and Planetary Science Letters.
